it depends on how close to the actual scale you want to get.
This is what n-scale (around 1/150) looks like with SHMA G2K:http://i.imgur.com/8tRvi7e.jpg
I will be glad to delete this image if need be, but just wanted to show what this scale looks like with the figure.
That would work at first glance...but closer inspection with the door frame heights, etc. would make G2K more of Kong 33 size. the green building on the left for example shows that Godzilla is only 4 or 5 stories high, despite his 50M height.
Yep, leunames, that is correct. For myself, that's fine, but that's why I wanted to show the picture. To me, it still gives the impression of a big monster while allowing for a pretty good variety with great detail on the buildings (and vehicles), but I certainly understand those who want something closer to movie accurate scale. I've tried looking for z-scale buildings, which are around 1:200 scale, but the variety is not there.
It's tricky for monsterarts-scale figures to get movie accurate. The figures are too small with respect that something 1:650 scale would most likely be an iconic building or skyscraper (why dedicate time and resources building a 1:650 scale shopping mall or apartment building when you can do 1 World Trade). That then leads into having the figures dwarfed by various office towers and the like, which they would be in real life. Unless you can find an airport of sorts or a seaport (which I have not seen).
It would be much easier to fine scale buildings and what not for a 12" tall figure or higher. Bascially the larger the figure, the easier it is to get scale buildings that "fit."
But of course, it's all personal preference. Yours works quite well
